Mercury Problems

Miscellaneous -- Verified

A cosmetic crack may develop on the plastic liftgate trim panel. Our technicians tell us the Ford has released a service procedure to replace the applique without damage the the liftgate glass.

Engine -- Verified

The composite (plastic) intake manifold may crack near the thermostat housing and cause a coolant leak. Ford released an updated manifold that was reinforced to prevent a recurrence. No recall was issued for this problem but Ford did extend the warranty to seven years on some models from the date of purchase.

Engine -- Verified

The engine oil pan gasket can develop a leak. Leaking oil may accumulate on the exhaust system resulting in a burning smell. Replacing the gasket should correct this leak.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

A failed heater blend door or actuator can cause the temperature control for the HVAC system to stop working. A clicking sound from the dash area would commonly indicate an actuator fault. If the heater gets stuck on the hottest setting, the heater blend door may be broken requiring replacement of the heater box to repair the issue.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

The composite (plastic) intake manifold may crack near the thermostat housing and cause a coolant leak. Ford released an updated manifold that was reinforced to prevent a recurrence. No recall was issued for this problem but Ford did extend the warranty to seven years on some models from the date of purchase.

Mercury Owners' Reviews

The Sable is probably the most troublesome car that I have ever owned. There have been multiple things that have broken and it's never something cheap. First, it was the fuel pump. Then, the alternator, the starter, the bearings, electrical problems, and now my transmission is starting to stick and has even fallen out of gear a couple times. By far, the worst car that I have ever owned.

2008 Mercury Mariner - I have had my car for 6 years, over 108,000 miles and have never had a single problem with it. It still rides great. I have never had to have the breaks replaced, not even the battery. Nothing leaks and the Sewell Ford dealership in Odessa, TX has the best service of any dealership I have ever used. They are the very best.

For no reason my 2005 mountaineer started spraying oil everytime I stop gas...just got an oil change two weeks ago

some are right 04 being junk the big issue is money.tranny is week engine is good tranny took 3 months to replace finding the correct one.yes loveing wife loves this car lord blessing wont fix it a prayer to bury it would be better..
